The Holidaze are upon us! It’s the time of year when all the family you have been avoiding the entire year comes to town, where anything chocolate/peppermint will be mixed in with your booze, and a slew of “charity” shows are being thrown in the name of some obscure charity.

Well… we do things a bit different for our annual holiday party. We have partnered with a LOCAL charity and we follow your donations with video coverage! We take your toys and donations straight to the kids in the Long Beach community who need them most. We take video so you can truly see the direct effect you are having on the local community. Here is a video recap from last year showing the bands and us bring the toys to Christian Outreach in Action’s holiday party.

Of course what awesome holiday party would be complete without great local music! These 5 amazing bands have donated their time and talent to make a difference in their community.

Music by:

Slow Learner –

Taylor Collins –

The Barrelhousers –

Boa Constrictors –

Eddie Booze –

Here is a video recap of the great music from LAST year’s show!

We started this tradition 4 years ago and we have been donating to the same Long Beach based charity, Christian Outreach in Action [], located in the heart of downtown. They service many of the poorest people in the city and hold an annual holiday party where 2,000 plus people come to get toys for underprivileged kids.

We thank you for your support!
